In good faith we must pass regulations approved as proposed to protect parents from any/all discrimination. These situations include but are not limited to discrimination based on race, color,national origin. religious affilation, age, gender, sexual orientation,disability or political affiliation.
As a individual who has experienced the tramatic lack of care in foster "care" at a very young age I know the importance and extreme value of adoption. Due to the age of my grandfather my brother and I were almost denyed the outstanding benefits, love and security of a wonderful home. I give thanks daily for the childhood that I was blessed with. Please do not deny any child the ability to grow and thrive in a secure home due to ANY percieved discrimination.
